Many homeowners spend their weekends working on projects. Whether you spend your time working on your house, your yard, or your car every weekend, there are some tools and items that you should always have at your disposal. Always remember to work smarter not harder and prepare for each project with the right tools.

A Good Pair Durable Work Gloves

No matter what project you are working on, it is important to keep your hands safe and, in the winter, warm. Having a durable pair of work gloves in your garage will guarantee that your hands will be out of harm’s way. Find a pair that fit well and will keep your hands warm through the winter. The best type off glove for this is a good pair of mechanic's gloves.

Durable and Comfortable Safety Glasses

Everyone that says safety glasses are unnecessary probably can’t see very well anymore. Protect your eyes with a good pair of glasses. Make sure to buy a pair that fit you well and are comfortable to wear while working. Safety glasses don’t have to be cumbersome and unattractive either. In fact, there are plenty of stylish options that will be much easier to wear.

A Tool Box with Tools in it

Every smart homeowner needs a basic set of tools and a tool box to keep them organized. Start by getting a reliable and sturdy tool box that you can keep in your garage through the seasons. Now, you need to put some tools in it. Most hardware stores will carry some starter sets or tools kits to get the ball rolling. They will generally include a hammer, an interchangeable screwdriver with different bits, a level, some pliers, an adjustable wrench, and utility knife. If you want to piece together some better quality tool you can do that, but follow the starter kits and get the same tools.

A Good Reliable Pocket Knife

A good pocket knife can come in handy for all projects. When your weed whip cord gets tangled you can cut the line, you can cut zip ties, or cut the limes for your next drink. Buy a good knife, take care of it, and it will last you a lifetime. There are also plenty of pocket knives that have multi-tool capabilities, adding screwdriver, file, plier, and wire cutter attachments.

A Sturdy Bottle Opener

After a long day’s work, there’s nothing better than cracking open a cold soda or a frothy beer. Don’t waste your time going in the house to get the bottle opener and keep a good, sturdy opener in your tool box.

Winter is coming up and it’s time to get your yard ready for the cold months. Make sure you have the right pair of work gloves to get you through the winter. Pugs offers a variety of options for sturdy and comfortable work gloves that will fit your needs. These gloves are also great to keep in your car to keep your hands warm on your commute to work or on your way to the mountains for your winter vacation with the family.
